    umbraco 8 compatible version?

    hello - is there a roadmap for Terratype/Terratype.GoogleMapsV3 that works in umbraco 8?

    I tried installing and got:

    Boot failed: Umbraco cannot run. See Umbraco's log file for more details.
    

    Umbraco.Core.Exceptions.BootFailedException: Boot failed. System.Reflection.ReflectionTypeLoadException: Could not load all types from "Terratype, Version=1.0.20.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null" due to LoaderExceptions, skipping:

    Hi Andrew,

    Yes, I do plan to release a version of Terratype for Umbraco 8.1

    The only reason I haven't yet is for personal reasons; vacation, enjoying the good weather, work etc. But we are talking weeks not months away.

    Cheers

    +1 For this. We have a project on Umbraco 8.1 going live soon, and having used Terratype on 7 I really really don't want to have to go back to rolling my own maps ...

    Hi Jonathan

    Sorry to revive an old thread. Do you have any updates around updating Terratype to Umbraco 8?

    Any information would be greatly appreciated (Is there much work left to complete the upgrade? etc.)

    I am currently reviewing an upgrade from 7 to 8 and we rely heavily on your plugin .

    Thanks in advance, Daniel

    Hi Daniel,

    I know you really want a time I plan to release the Umbraco V8 compatable Terratype, and I don't want to commit to a deadline. What I can say is where I am currently at.

    1. Start a V8 branch
    2. Converted all existing Terratype V7 code to V8
    3. Compile against V8
    4. Run the existing tests against this new V8 code, Tests do pass succesfully

    What I have left to do

    1. Test code inside a real live Umbraco 8
    2. Release new version of Terratype (This will become Terratype 2.0.0)

    So I'm at the stage where most of the code is converted, but not tested. This stage is the frustration stage.

    Cheers

    Jonathan Richards

    Hi Jonathan,

    Is there anything we can do to help you to release this package for Umbraco 8?

    I have done with the migration of my site from 7 to 8.2 and the only things left is literally this package, so I am willing to help in any way I can to release this package.

    Cheers

    Hi Jonathan,

    Hope you are well, I was just wondering if you have managed to release the V8 version of this great package?

    I am currently using it for one of my sites in V7 and it works great but I have upgraded to v8 and the only thing left is this package.

    Looking forward to hearing from you!

    Best regards,

    Ali

    Hi Ali,

    This is the current state of Terratype V8

    https://github.com/Joniff/Terratype/tree/V8

    The code compiles and the tests pass, But I suspect it requires another week of work to get it ready for release, which is time I don't have spare right now.

    Hopefully things will ease up over Christmas.

    Cheers

    Jonathan Richards

    Hi Jonathan,

    Thank you, I will have a look to see what I can do to make it just work for now and hopefully, you will get some time to release this great package officially :)

    Cheers

    Hi Andrew,

    The reason I needed this package was, I have migrated a website from V7 to V8. however, I realised that the model of this package in V7 is comma-separated value latitude, longitude, zoom whereas the compatible version of this package with Umbraco 8 has a very complex model.

    Therefore, I am going to create a new package to just use the comma-separated value to show the map. that's the route I have taken so far.

    So didn't take it any further with the testing of this package to be very honest!

    Cheers

    Ali

    Hi,

    it's been a while since information about this was shared. I would like to know if it's still the plan to create a version for Umbraco 8?

    Is the existing v8 branch release-ready?

    Unfortunately I couldn't find a reasonable alternative for this package and I hope that I don't have to either...
